Welcome to Renton Counseling Center

At Renton Counseling Center, we believe in compassionate, transformational, and competent mental health counseling for individuals and families who reside in Renton and surrounding areas. The human experience is a complicated one and most of us, at one time or another have found ourselves overwhelmed by life. When we respond to life's struggles in ways less than successful we may experience depression and anxiety. Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for the relief of these and many other psychological symptoms.

We believe in partnering with compassionate, creative, and competent practitioners who would enjoy learning and growing as they support their patients. RCC’s innovative use to technology provide patients flexible scheduling options including telehealth and in person, and provide quantitative clinical feedback on treatment effectiveness and are unique to the local industry. 

RCC Clinical Providers

We know how important it is to find the right match when choosing a therapist for yourself or a family member.  Please review carefully the provider their education, training background, and treatment modality explained in detail in their profiles.  

We have two types of providers, fully licensed masters level counselors and partially licensed associate license providers. Associate licensed providers are under supervision working on their full licensure and have less clinical experience. Partially licensed providers called associates and they bill insurance under supervisor license, Vera Dragonchuk.

We are credentialed clinic with most insurance companies and we bill our services to your insurance for payment. See more information on our insurance page
